of the american right poured over today in hearings on chuck hagel's nomination to be secretary of defense. hatred, pure and simple. from the mouths of john mccain and lindsey graham as they slashed away at war hero hagel. badgering the witness is too nice a description. the hawks swirled like buzzards sweeping down, pecking and pulling at the skin of a former colleague who dared to say this country's been too ready to enter wars the american people quickly wish we'd never gotten into. what's with this hatred now centered in the american sunbelt? what do we make of this poll that shows two out of three texas republicans now want our president impeached? why the cussedness, why the range war, why the hatred of anyone who dares to stand with obama? why can't politics be a matter of belief and honest disagreement, not hatred? why the sick little intramurals we saw today? we begin with senator jeanne shaheen of new hampshire. i want you to watch this back-and-forth between john mccain and the witness today, chuck hagel. let's take a look. >> were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge w
unequivocally why diplomacy and development are right up there with defense. how when we think about who we are as americans, it's because we are united and committed across our government to do whatever is required to fulfill the missions we have assumed as public officials and public servants. >> right up there with defense. that is one of the big ideas of the obama presidency, right? essentially, reorienting how america deals with the world away from the u.s. military and toward u.s. diplomacy. to upscale our soft power capacity as a country so we have more options beyond just the option of force. this president did a lot to advance that idea simply by putting somebody as high profile as hillary clinton in the job of america's head diplomat. but the overall goal of upscaling state, upscaling diplomacy and development so they are right up there with defense, like she said today, that is widely regarded as a goal that is not yet realized. secretary clinton alluded to that fact today when she said she now plans to become an advocate for that cause from the outside. it is, frankly, easy to i
leaving the senate. hagel's former colleagues hold the nomination as defense chief in their hands. despite the thousands of dollars of ads running against him, hagel a republican is expected to be confirmed to president obama's cabinet. if so, he will be the nation's first pentagon chief to have seen combat as an enlisted soldier. he served in vietnam alongside his brother. but that doesn't mean hagel's record comes without dirty laundry that was aired at today's hearing. >> when i voted against some of those unilateral sanctions on iran, it was a different time. we were at a different place with iran. >> what do you think that the iranian foreign ministry so strongly supported your nomination to be the secretary of defense? >> i have a difficult enough time with american politics, senator. i have no idea. but thank you. i'm on the record many times designating and saying that hezbollah and hamas are terrorist organizations. saying iran is a state sponsor of terrorism. i have always said i'm a supporter of israel. and some cases, i have said i'm a strong supporter of israel. i have never v

to have to face defense secretary if he gets confirmed senator chuck hagel during those hearings is this question of sequestration, something that would be on the table, of course, these defense cuts. first he has got to get through the confirmation issue and, boy, was it a rough confirmation hearing. >> kel well, compare it how quickly they confirm john kerry, right? >> right. >> this is the other end of the spectrum. it was almost uncomfortable to watch it times getting hammered by a number of senators. >> pretty much every pundit that you heard from said pathetic, he seemed confused. he messed up some policies he wasn't even familiar with containment. and president obama's position on that. getting notes handed to him. but at the same time, we have got jay carney saying he is doing great. >> yeah. let's listen to him. >> today senator hagel answered the questions appropriately and did a fine job. we believe he will be confirmed. as i said before, he has, i think there has been increase in the number of senators who have come out in support of him. not a decrease. since the hea
so far. president obama spec for defense secretary chuck hagel faced a torrent of questions and criticism over his foreign policy stance thursday during his senate confirmation hearing. he has seen opposition from within his own republican party for failing to adequately back the party line on israel and iran. hegel was attacked during the hearing for earlier comments that were perceived as critical of israel. this is south carolina senator lindsey graham. >> you said the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people. senator.itand israelis i cannot think of a more provocative thing to say about the relationship between the united states and israel and the senate or congress and which you said. do you agree with me you should not have said something like that? >> yes, i've already said that. >> he also faced a grilling from longtime friend and senate colleague arizona senator john mccain over his views on iraq war. >> were you correct or incorrect when he said the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam? correct or incorrect? yes or
the next ten years. he ruled out tax increases. house republicans don't want to cut defense spending, in fact, in the romney campaign they wanted to raise it quite a bit. in theory, you shouldn't cut medicare for anybody retiring in the next ten years, so you can't get cuts there if you stick to that. the whole budget, it is only about a trillion and a half dollars. that is all of our spending on the poor and education, and skills training and research, everything else we're doing, it is about a trillion and a half. and ryan needs $800 billion. is ryan really going to cut all that by half, by more than half? that would be the most unpopular budget in history, it would be a disaster. or would the republican party change their promises and cut into medicaid or social security in the next ten years? this is what they have backed themselves into, these choices. there is a reason why ryan, who is really a conservative guy, who is trying to create a budget, that was a genuinely conservative guy, if you're not raising taxes you can't do it in a reasonable way. there is a reason he is having

, the drones, things people are talking about today. the next secretary of defense is not going to have to deal with iraq. iraq is a fait accompli, but john mccain is obsessed with the past and with the glory of war idea that is from the 20th century. he needs to move on. >> here is lindsey graham badgering defense nominee hagel on whether the iranian revolutionary national guard should be designated a terrorist organization. i think this is aimed directly at south carolina's right wing. let's listen. >> if there was a vote on the floor of the senate this afternoon to label the iranian revolutionary guard, the people who have killed our soldiers in iraq, some of the most vicious people to the people of iran themselves, if there were a vote tomorrow or this afternoon or after lunch, would you still vote no? >> well, i would want to know from the president what they were doing, but, again -- >> i mean, you read the paper, you watch tv. you got any doubt what they're doing? if you had a chance tomorrow, today, after lunch to vote to say that the iranian revolutionary guard was a terrorist organiza

with democrats and republicans in congress to put the budget on a path to balance and saved defense. i think the sequester is going to happen because that $1.2 trillion in spending cuts, we can't lose those spending cuts. and don't for get one other thing. i wrote legislation and passed it in the house twice to replace those sequesters with cuts in other areas of government. we have shown how to protect defense spending by cutting spending in other areas. in our budget last year, we did take money out of defense. just not nearly as much as the president seems to want to. but we think the sequesters will happen because the democrats have opposed our efforts to replace those cuts with others and offered no alternatives. >> is this worth shutting the government down over? >> no one is talking about shutting the government down. >> well, it's a piece of the leverage that conservatives have. you didn't want to fight over the debt ceiling because you thought you can't do tha you have to pay the government's bills. do you think this fight over priority is worth shutting the government down? >> we'r
president. one is ted cruz, the guy who opposes both kerry for state and chuck hagel for defense. how interesting. two people who have fought for their country, the vietnam war, been awarded medals for their service. ted cruz was never serving in the military, but insists these two gutsy veterans don't deserve the office to which the president has appointed them. don't you just love these people? they don't like the military enough to join it, they dump on people who served and have the nerve to ask for more war. ask the typical hawk what he thought the war was looking back, a bad idea. putting our marines into lebanon, somalia. my appearance experience is they like them all. not only that, but they are always, as i said, ready for another. iraq, yes. afghanistan, yes. iraq again, yes. iran, let's go. why do people listen to these types? why the knee-jerk salute every time one of these armchair hawks itches for another conflict? i'm glad we have kerry now as the same reason i'm glad there was an anwar sadat, a yitzhak rabin. and out of the disastrous suze campaign. i'm glad the h
